“I enjoy working at NCH because of the patients. I am taking care of a community. My interactions in the hospital are personal. Here, we treat the person, interact with the family and then see them at the grocery store or the beach. ”Island Staff Member

Faith Frable, MD has worked at Nantucket Cottage Hospital since 2009 at which time she was working part of the year in the Arctic Circle of Alaska and part of the year on Nantucket.
As time went on, she and her family spent more and more time on Nantucket and less time in Alaska, until the fall of 2011 when they made their last pilgrimage to the frozen North. She is currently the Medical Director of the Emergency Department, works full time clinical shifts in the Emergency Department and works part time as a hospitalist.
Dr. Frable grew up near Portland, Maine, graduated from Middlebury College, spent a year in Italy learning Italian and then attended Medical School at the University of Connecticut. From Connecticut she went to Hunterdon Medical Center (where she was born) in western New Jersey to complete a family medicine residency program.
She lives with her husband and 5 girls on Nantucket on a small farm in Polpis where they are committed to a simpler and more sustainable way of life.
